STOW, OH Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels joins forces with the Lucas Oil Off Road Racing Series this year as a sponsor. Through this program, Mickey Thompson will provide the legendary Baja tires and track-side support to racers. Mickey Thompson will work collaboratively with teams in the Pro-Lite Unlimited and Pro-Buggy Unlimited classes to test and prove their off-road tire products.

“This is a fantastic venue for us to be involved in,” stated Ken Warner, VP of Sales and Marketing for Mickey Thompson Performance Tires & Wheels. “Lucas Oil puts on the best short course race in the industry today and we are thrilled to be a part of the program. Back when Mickey Thompson himself was promoting his Mickey Thompson Stadium Series / MTEG, he was the leader in this type of racing. We’ve built on that passion, and in 2011 our plan is to return to short course racing and prove our tires and increase our involvement as we go.”
